white house reporter, who doesn't notice. >> rick, again, it steams like this happens all the time. the claims that we are the most transparent administration ever and whether it is on this story or whether it's on benghazi, it is drip, drip, drip or delay the informs and dump it on a friday. we are supposed to deal with it and say, isn't this wonderful that we have the informs. but it's a fact, is it not, moving to benghazi for a second, we had the al qaeda leader proclaiming that the benghazi response shows that america is on the defensive, that we're gaining ground. look, that's boasting on their part, obviously. but still, the signals that are sent around the world is that america has a confused foreign policy and a weakened defensive posture. >> it's really a weak reaction. look, during the clinton administration issue we had the bombing of the uss cole. we had the implosion, the terrorist attack on our embassies in tanzania and kenya.
